Nebbiolo Red Wine

Nebbiolo is considered Italy's most sophisticated red grape. A cool-climate varietal grown predominantly in and around Piedmont in the northwest, it is what gives the wines of Barolo, Barbaresco and Alba their rose-perfumed, ethereal elegance, their intense fruit profiles and high levels of tannin and acidity. As such, wines made from nebbiolo typically show a remarkable capacity for ageing.

Much like pinot noir, nebbiolo is notoriously tricky to grow. At the same time, is it very much a 'terroir'-driven varietal, rewarding both winemaker and drinker with the wonderfully expressive nuances of the place in which it is cultivated. In other words, well worth the effort!

Classic attributes include rose, violet, cherry, spice and tar on the nose, leading to dark cherry, raspberry, liquorice and more spice on the palate followed by great freshness and length on the finish. Nebbiolo is a consumate food wine whose vibrant acidity makes it a beautiful match for all manner of charcuterie, pork and tomato-based dishes and spice-driven Asian cuisine.
